The hesitation shows that the government thinks it can afford to lockdown with less support in Labour-voting areas. Rishi Sunak is set to introduce further economic support measures to support businesses in tier two areas. Inevitably, the Chancellor will be accused of London-centrism, because he refrained from introducing bespoke tier two measures until London (and Birmingham, where the Conservatives have hopes of retaining the West Midlands metro-mayoralty in May 2021) entered into it. Politically, that's a good tune for Labour to play and one that may cause the Conservatives long-term electoral damage in the seats they won in 2019.

The Chancellor’s biggest policy and political defeat is a result of the introduction of metro-mayors outside of London. In the biggest setback in his short and glittering career, Rishi Sunak U-turned on practically everything. He overhauled his job support scheme for businesses that are still open, transforming it from a scheme that incentivises businesses not to use it to one that will see the government paying the wages for a much larger chunk of the workforce in businesses across the country, by slashing the required employer contribution from a third to just five per cent. He has extended his programme of grants to businesses in tier two areas. Sunak’s priority has been to reduce the amount the government is spending on economic support.

The Greater Manchester mayor has demonstrated passion and authority at a moment of emergency. In another world, Boris Johnson calls an urgent cabinet meeting on 16 March and says this: “Look, this virus means our strategy is in ruins. We need a hard, fast, lockdown and I don’t care what the behavioural science says, I believe the British people will do it, and stick with it, if we level with them about the costs. The economic costs are huge – so, Rishi, we are going to do what Trump’s been doing: borrow, print money and spend. I don’t care how much – and we do it over and over, until the virus is gone.”Michael Gove smirks, Rishi Sunak texts something to Robert Peston, while Dominic Cummings thinks about hitting the fire alarm so he can ret.

White men continue to hold disproportionate political power both institutionally and online, according to a New Statesman analysis. Political power and influence is still largely the preserve of white men according to two new analyses by the. New Statesman , one examining institutional power in government and the other assessing political influence online. It is already well known that the upper echelons of government are far from diverse.

The humanitarian chief warns no nation will be able to protect itself from Covid-19 without helping poorer countries, too. Mark Lowcock has long had reason to be optimistic. For most of the UN’s humanitarian chief’s lifetime, the lot of people across the Global South has been steadily improving. Billions were being lifted out of extreme poverty, deadly diseases such as smallpox were being eradicated, the status of women around the globe was steadily improving. The 58-year-old has even written a book,. Ten Generations , to be published next year, charting that seemingly inexorable march of progress and prosperity though 300 years of his own ancestors’ history. No longer. In the span of just a few months, the coronavirus pandemic has knocked g.

Veirs is, quietly, one of the greatest living American songwriters. “When I think of the end times you come to mind,” sings on My Echo , her eleventh solo album, released on Bella Union on 23 October. On its own, it’s a statement that could be read either as damning or unbearably romantic. In the context of the song, “End Times”, an ethereal piano ballad, it’s more the latter: our love has ended, Veirs implies, but that doesn’t mean I won’t always hold it with me, won’t be thinking about you when the apocalypse hits. The song sways with the gentle melancholy of Veirs’ present but doesn’t forget the beauty of the past: “As the Earth cracks in two/And we fall out into space/I’ll be thinking of your hands/And all the times they held my face.”

Fourteen years after the first film, but mere months in the making, Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat returns in this biting satirical sequel. In one sense, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is among the tardiest of all sequels. It has been 14 years since Borat Sagdiyev, the blundering, credulous Kazakh reporter created and played by Sacha Baron Cohen, crossed the US in an ice-cream van in pursuit of Pamela Anderson. Tired of the world laughing at Kazakhstan after that film, its president now sends Borat back to the US to present a gift to “Vice Pussy-Grabber” Mike Pence in order to restore the country’s glory. Hence the film’s full title, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of

Lee is known for her landmark biographies of writers such as Virginia Woolf and Edith Wharton. Now, she has taken on her first living subject: Tom Stoppard. Hermione Lee and Tom Stoppard operate on very different sleep schedules. While writing her new biography of the British playwright, Lee would visit and sometimes stay overnight at Stoppard’s 1790s home in rural Dorset. The next morning, Lee “would be sitting there with my notebook from breakfast time onwards”, she laughs. “He’s more of a theatre time person. So he’d pick up energy in the evening – just as I was beginning to flag.”Some lines of conversation energised him more than others – like his 1960s wardrobe, which prompted a long “terrific riff” about lime green Cuban heels, Biba

In his painting of one of the country’s many lakes, Gallen-Kallela saw a nation rippling into life. Akseli Gallen-Kallela’s route to becoming Finland’s national painter took him round the world, both geographically and stylistically. Although he is best known for painting the lakes and forests of his homeland and for his pictures illustrating the Kalevala – Finland’s native epic poem – his art bears a foreign imprint. Gallen-Kallela was born in 1865 when the Grand Duchy of Finland was part of the Russian empire. The painter himself came from a Swedish-speaking region and although he trained initially in Helsinki, his real artistic formation took place in Paris (where he also became friends with August Strindberg), while he went on to learn

Cooper Clarke’s I Wanna Be Yours , Martin and Quick’s Unions Renewed , Krauss’s To Be a Man , and In the Kitchen: Essays on Food and Life. I Wanna Be Yours by John Cooper Clarke. Few performers have as distinctive a voice as “the Bard of Salford”. In John Cooper Clarke’s first autobiography, his wry style is as recognisable as it is when he reads “Beasley Street” on stage. Clarke recalls his life, from his childhood in a Salford suburb, through the early days of his career opening for local punk acts, and into the debilitating heroin addiction he finally faced up to in the late Eighties. With appearances from personalities including Chuck Berry and Alex Turner, this is an exuberant account of a remarkable life. Picador, 480pp, £20. Unions Ren.

New documentaries featuring David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg are uneasy about their stars' hero status. The world has arguably never been more in need of a hero. Someone to confront the vast existential threats posed by climate change; to unite global populations in the planet’s defence; and to inspire us, despite the magnitude of the crisis, to demand environmental justice ourselves. In many ways, two such individuals already exist – 17-year-old Greta Thunberg and 94-year-old David Attenborough. At least, that is the implication of two documentaries, Nathan Grossman’s I Am Greta , and Alastair Fothergill and Jonathan Hughes’s David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet , both out this month. Members of very different generations, Thunber.

Everyone in it is paying the price for some bit of bad behaviour, their innards, metaphorically speaking, trailing behind them like bloody ropes. David Hare’s latest television thriller (18 October, 9pm), the title of which brings to mind rodents spread across country roads, all guts and matted fur, is extremely well-named, for it does indeed involve both much spattering and several rats.

Why Firestone’s groundbreaking manifesto The Dialectic of Sex , first published in 1970, still feels radical today. If there were another word more all-embracing than revolution we would use it.” So opens Shulamith Firestone’s radical feminist manifesto The Dialectic of Sex: The Case for Feminist Revolution . Published in 1970, the book’s ferocity and imagination still gesture towards a horizon more radical than revolution – even as we approach its 50th anniversary. Firestone was 25 when she wrote The Dialectic of Sex . Born in 1945 – her mother was a German refugee, her father an American serviceman who took part in the liberation of Bergen-Belsen – Firestone chafed against the conservatism of her Orthodox Jewish parents and left home, bou.

The podcast You're Wrong About re-examines the long-established narratives surrounding the Princess of Wales with renewed empathy.

In her new collection Mantel Pieces , Hilary Mantel’s critical voice is superior, unkind – and deeply enjoyable. The life of Maximilien Robespierre, ­Hilary Mantel writes, “is conventionally divided into 31 years that don’t matter and five that do”. It is tempting to say something similar about the author herself, who endured decades as a writer’s writer, more praised than read, before her instant elevation to national treasure when she won the 2009 Booker Prize for Wolf Hall . For someone so attuned to the reductive power of myth-making, it must be odd to become an icon. These days, Mantel cannot even dare to notice that the former Kate Middleton is thin, or idly speculate on how Margaret Thatcher might be assassinated, without attracting

The Gamble r brings to mind that old cliché: it is both good and original, but what is good is not original, and what is original is not good. Shortly after my review of Tom Bower’s biography of Jeremy Corbyn had been published, I bumped into a former aide to Tony Blair, who commiserated with me on the painful task of making one’s way through Bower’s uneven and error-marked prose.

If either the Prime Minister or. the Tories’. mayoral candidate had a way out of London’s mess, they would surely have shared it. What should we make of Boris Johnson’s lie that Sadiq Khan bankrupted Transport for London? The first, and in many ways most important thing, is that it once again shows that the press struggles to cover out-and-out lies from politicians. Johnson’s claim is not “disputed”, it is not “arguable”: it is as false as if I were to claim that today in PMQs, Johnson pulled down his trousers, announced “I’m going to do to the coronavirus what I’m doing to this despatch box” before proceeding to rub himself against it. Transport for London has a day-to-day operating deficit, but one that it. . Its financial reserves also grew.

From Macron’s En Marche! to the Conservatives’s “Get Brexit Done”: how populists embraced the language of science and expertise. A few days before it was announced there would be a nationwide UK lockdown from late March, Sky News political editor Beth Rigby remarked on an unexpected shift in the Prime Minister’s behaviour. Struck by the importance Boris Johnson was attaching to scientific advice, Rigby mused that a populist politician seemed to be taking a non-populist approach to the crisis. The embrace of science has persisted throughout the pandemic. As well as justifying government decisions in the language of scientific advice, the country’s chief medical officers and scientific advisers – from Chris Whitty and Jenny Harries to the ill.
